Subject: RE: Squirrel not starting

The shortcut that Squirrel puts on the Windows Start menu links to a .bat file that tries to find java and culminates with this command

start "SQuirreL SQL Client" /B "%LOCAL_JAVA%" -Xmx256m -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -cp %SQUIRREL_CP% -splash:"%SQUIRREL_SQL_HOME%/icons/splash.jpg" net.sourceforge.squirrel_sql.client.Main %TMP_PARMS%

If it can't find java or the java found is not supported it will abort. Since the startup command above is embedded in "start" with a /B option, the command window that would otherwise display the messages is hidden. Try after removing the /B and see what messages pop up in the command window.

Most likely there's still an environment variable %IZPACK_JAVA% that was set by the Squirrel installer that no longer points to an extant path containing javaw.exe. Could be that %JAVA_HOME% is still set to the old java, though the java installer is supposed to fix that.

Reinstalling Squirrel will probably reset everything, but that is really overkill when the only issue is an errant environment variable. On the other hand, it only takes a couple minutes to reinstall Squirrel, but then you might have to reset all your driver parameters.

Subject: Squirrel not starting

Just updated Java on my Windows 7 laptop.

My intention was to eliminate java class errors when I attempted to
use the driver to enable Squirrel to connect to MS SQL Server - my
connection to the i was working fine.

After the Java update, I took the recommended option to remove older
versions, and then re-started.

Now, when I attempt to start Squirrel, I see the initial "start
window" but it quickly closes and Squirrel does not start.

I guess I need to re-install Squirrel ?
